Why Is Everyone Shaving Their Heads During the Lockdown?

Shaving Head

The world is practicing social distancing to help health workers fight the deadly Coronavirus, which has now become a pandemic. People are voluntarily—and in some countries, forcefully—staying at home to play their part in stopping the spread of COVID-19.

There has been a drastic shift in all of our routines. In fact, the meaning of ‘routine’ has irrevocably changed. Social distancing has had drastic psychological effects on all of us.

In the midst of all of this, we’re seeing a lot of buzz on online platforms. From social media challenges to people trying out various life hacks, a lot of creative (and life-changing) trends have emerged ever since the world came to a standstill. These trends are helping people cope with the stress of the ongoing pandemic while keeping them connected with their loved ones.

One of the more eyebrow-raising ones is people shaving their heads. Is there more to this trend than just plain boredom? Let’s look into the details:

Hair Salons And Barbershops Are Closed For An Indefinite Period of Time

Weekly or bi-weekly grooming sessions were a regular part of some people’s everyday lives. These visits to barbershops and hair salons were like me-time, which has now been snatched away. For most of us, getting a haircut, a hot shave, or a beard trim every week was like self-care.

And regardless of the number of DIY haircutting tutorials that have popped up online, we’ve seen more failures than success stories when it comes to people cutting their hair. The risk just isn’t worth it.

Hence, most people are saying goodbye to their efforts and are settling down for a bald head.

Saving Money On Shampoos And Conditioners

More hair on your head means more consumption of quality hair products. There’s no question that a lot of us are facing a financial crisis right now and are trying to eliminate as many expenses as we can. Trimming your hair and going bald is the most financially feasible option right now.

Out Of Pure Boredom

You’ve deep cleaned your home for the third time this week. You’ve watched everything that Netflix or YouTube had to offer. You’ve reread all the books, tried all the recipes, and dusted every inch of your home.

After hours of trying to keep your mind occupied, there’s nothing left to do. Until an exciting idea dawns upon you: let’s change how you look.

Since dyeing your hair isn’t an option because of the unavailability of supplies, you go for an easier option—shaving your head. Even if you end up looking like a potato, no one’s going to see you for a long time, so you might as well rock that buzz cut every day in front of the mirror.

If you’ve been experiencing hair loss, it might be time to try hair restoration processes after your quarantine shaved head experiment.
